Last week I told you about the larger baby shower that was thrown for Mary's bundle of joy, Liam, with the children's book theme. My friend Katie and I decided to throw a small shower for Mary with our close girlfriends. Katie and Mary threw my couples shower with all of our friends so I knew I wanted to throw Mary something equally as nice. Knowing Mary's style, we wanted to keep it small and intimate while also doing a brunch versus the bigger party style food. We started planning the shower around this great invitation I found on Pinterest. I recreated it in Photoshop.
Katie's sister is pretty good in the arts area so when we found a similar pin on Pinterest to our chalkboard below, we knew we needed her help. I love how the menu board turned out!
The table was set with mason jars with each girls name on it along with OJ, cranberry & champagne!
The food was amazing if I do say so myself! Fruit & granola parfaits, roasted potatoes, sausage, egg & cheese bake...
And my favorite, the cinnamon roll french toast!
Yes that is icing all over the french toast!
After breakfast was present opening...
Lots of great Ohio State gear...
Just before leaving we were able to get a cute shot of Mary's bump and our friend Lindsey's bump.
Lindsey has an almost 2 year old who will marry Addie when they're older. Baby Liam and Lindsey's daughter (due just a few weeks after Mary) have been arranged already!
Katie and I made macarons for the shower to do something a bit nontraditional I failed to get a shot before we all started digging in. They were still amazing.
On the way out each girl got to take a mug with their initial on it. This was a DIY project that was super easy and well worth the time!
And just for fun, a shot of the new mommy with me and Katie. Being super cute!
It was such a nice relaxing shower and I'm so happy we did a small intimate shower with the girls.
